We are all the same: a story of a boy's courage and a mother's love

Book Cover
Average Rating
Penguin Press,
Pub. Date:
An extraordinarily moving account of a courageous South African boy's battle with AIDS that is also a scathing indictment of South African leaders who have failed to confront the AIDS epidemic in their country. Nkosi was infected by his mother, Daphne. As Wooten recounts, Daphne moved heaven and earth to insure that her son would be provided for after her own death and agreed to his adoption, at age three, by Gail Johnson, a white South African, who had met Nkosi at a hospice. A hero in her own right, Johnson nourished Nkosi's spirit, which gave out only when he died at the age of 12.
